Testo della canzone Trial Before Pilate (Including The 39 Lashes) di Andrew Lloyd Webber
Album:
(Pilate)
And so the king
Is once again my guest
And why is this?
Was Herod unimpressed?

(Caiaphas)
We turned to Rome
To sentence Nazareth
We have no law
To put a man to death
We need him crucified
It’s all you have to do

(Pilate)
Talk to me, Jesus Christ
You have been brought here
Manacled, beaten by your own people
Do you have the first idea
Why you deserve it?
Listen, king of the Jews,
Where is your kingdom?
Look at me
Am I a Jew?

(Jesus)
I have got no kingdom
In this world
I’m through, through, through
There may be a kingdom for me
Somewhere if I only knew

(Pilate)
You’re a king

(Jesus)
Yes you can see I am
I look for truth
And find that I get damned

(Pilate)
What is truth?
Is truth unchanging law?
We both have truths
Are mine the same as yours?

(Crowd)
Crucify him, crucify him!

(Pilate)
What do you mean
You’d crucify your king?

(Crowd)
We have no king but Caesar

(Pilate)
He’s done no wrong
No, not the slightest thing

(Crowd)
We have no king but Caesar
Crucify him!

(Pilate)
I see no reason
I find no evil
This man is harmless
So why does he upset you?
He’s just misguided
Thinks he’s important
But to keep you vultures happy
I shall flog him

(Crowd)
Crucify! Crucify!

(Pilate counts off the 39 Lashes)
One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Six! Seven! Eight! Nine! Ten! Eleven!
Twelve! Thirteen! Fourteen! Fifteen! Sixteen! Seventeen! Eighteen!
Nineteen! Twenty! Twenty one! Twenty
